Grace Lutheran School

Jacksonville, Florida

Good afternoon, Parents:

Many sincere thanks for the gifts and goodies you sent in for our holiday party today! We feasted like royalty and enjoyed movie time and our gift exchange. Also, just in case the handwritten cards get lost in the holiday hubbub of hauling papers home, thank you for your thoughtful teacher gifts, too! My greatest reward is spending time with your children each day, shepherding them through their struggles, and cheering them on when they need encouragement. God has designed them each with individual quirks and talents, and I've enjoyed getting to know them better this semester.
 
May you have a blessed Christmas with your families. Looking forward to celebrating the end of final exam week with your children at the roller rink tomorrow!
 
Blessings,
Mrs. Jaeger

Welcome to Mrs. Jaeger's Webpage!

Our middle school students connect to Christ as they study and memorize the Scriptures in Religion class and Middle School Bible Study, and as they praise Him during Chapel and Middle School devotions. 

Students connect to the Grace community through our Chapel Buddies program, where older students are paired with four-year-old students for chapel and other buddy-bonding activities. Students build relationships through after-school clubs such as Russian Club and Cooking Club. They learn teamwork through playing on our golf, volleyball, soccer, cross-country, basketball, cheer, and track teams.

Grace parents connect to our community through cheering on our sports teams together, chaperoning field trips, worshipping at chapel, and more! 

Grace graduates connect to area high schools, arriving 100 percent prepared for the transition to high school. While at Grace, students develop study skills, note-taking skills, writing skills, and a well-rounded academic foundation that will allow them to succeed at the next level at the school of their choosing.

I am cheering for my students and their families along this journey! I am ready and willing to guide students as they learn and grow, clearing roadblocks and soothing sore spirits. I love teaching middle schoolers because they bring energy to the classroom.

As I seek to teach children, I am always mindful that I am praying for the Lord to teach me, too. “Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long” (Psalm 25:4-5).

May God bless us as we encourage each other to stay Connected this school year!
